Across different regions, we enjoyed sustained robust bookings, the addition of new customers, and the increase in our backlog, giving us confidence for the remainder of the year. We achieved new 5G design wins.

We continue to be confident about our revenue growth in 2021 and still expect it to be on the higher end of our annual revenue guidance, which is between $275-$295 million. That said, the global component and shipping challenges still create fluctuations in our quarterly revenues, and influence our gross margin. Despite these challenges, we expect our net income for the second half of 2021, on a non-GAAP basis, to be around break-even.
